Thinking your spouse is cheating is a feeling that will gnaw at your gut until you have confirmed the facts. Whether it turns out to be a complete misunderstanding, or your partner is indeed cheating, getting to the bottom of it and finding out the truth will help relieve the nagging questions in the back of your mind and at least push you to the next step, whatever that may be.
If you are thinking of hiring a professional for an infidelity investigation, consider the below factors and questions you should ask yourself.
Why Do You Think Your Spouse is Cheating?
Before getting ahead of yourself, try to take a moment to consider why you’re feeling like your spouse or partner may be cheating. Do they seem preoccupied? Do they suddenly seem busier than they used to be? Perhaps the issue is really something happening at work, or something they’re worrying about in terms of their health or finances that they didn’t want to bother you with. In this case, trying to have a discussion about these topics could help clear things up and bring you closer.
We wouldn’t advise jumping to conclusions after one dinner missed due to a last-minute business meeting. However, if you are suddenly seeing a repeated pattern – repeated late nights at the office, a new before-work gym schedule, etc. – it could be a good time for you to put an end to your constant wondering by hiring a private investigator to find out the truth.
Do You Really Want to Know?
Before considering hiring a private investigator, you have to be prepared to find out what’s really happening – good or bad. If you’re at a point in your life where you don’t think you’re ready for the information if it turns out your suspicions are accurate, it may be best to hold off until you can feel more comfortable processing the outcome. However, in our experience working with infidelity investigations over the past two decades, our clients are almost always just relieved to have found out the truth, no matter the outcome.
What Will You Do With the Information Once You Find Out?
If you have decided you are ready to know the truth, no matter the outcome, you should also consider thinking about what you would do with the information once you find out – good or bad. I’ve had clients that have stayed with their partners after finding out their spouse was indeed cheating, and they were content with this – they just wanted to know and put an end to the nagging question in their minds. Whatever you do once the information is in your hands is completely your choice. As a professional private investigation agency, everything we speak about and deliver to our clients is kept completely confidential so you have complete control of the next steps.
Investigating Cheating Spouse: Our Process
If you do choose to pursue hiring a private investigator to see if your spouse is cheating or being unfaithful, we will first set up a surveillance plan based on the subject’s known schedule. Typically, the first day of surveillance is to establish the subject’s schedule, and the investigation continues from there. Our private investigators will follow the subject from home in the morning, to the gym, to the office, on lunch breaks, etc. and report any suspicious behaviour.
If the subject is found to be cheating, we can also offer an “other person investigation” where we can provide a background check on the person(s) the subject is being seen with, like whether they are married, what they do for a living, where they live, etc. For the safety and wellbeing of both the subject and the client, we use our professional best judgement in disclosing this information. Our intention is never to put anyone in danger, but to expose the truth.
